How to embrace the Cloud Computing Concept Properly?

Cloud Computing ConceptThere is a great need for the chief information officers of all organizations who are tech-savvy to embrace the new technology that has come up on the block, called as cloud computing. Companies like AT & T and IBM are leaving no stone upturned to make the use of cloud computing a reality. On October 9th, 2012, AT & T and IBM announced a business agreement to deliver a secure and first of a kind network enabled cloud service that can be hosted on private networks rather than on the public internet. This gives a shot in the arm to those critics who view cloud computing as an unsecured network enabled application.

But, it is not clear as to how we can move forward in making cloud computing a reality. Although companies like the two mentioned above are making efforts in this direction, it will take some time before cloud computing is universally accepted as a useful application which can be leveraged for organizations data storage needs. It ultimately boils down to the three pronged approach that is invariably resorted to when negotiating the cloud for various applications.

One needs to learn the concept. An exceptional knowledge of Java is necessary to know more about cloud computing. For this the Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Java Programming can be referred to which teaches us some basic concepts of Java including variables, loops and if-else statements which helps us create objects and also teaches us a method to initialize them. For trying out anything new, learning its language is of utmost importance in order to learn more about the platform. Java is a language that is widely used in the cloud computing framework. It is Java which enables communication between networks through the cloud.

The second approach to be used to embrace the cloud is to apply the concept after having learnt it. The language Java is helping us make the concepts of the cloud simpler and entertaining such that they can be applied in a tangible fashion. We have to apply the concept that we learnt in the first step and only doing that will allow us to understand the cloud in depth. We have to use the knowledge of variables, loops and if-else statements which will help us understand the cloud better. Uncovering the mysteries of the cloud can be done by first learning and then applying the knowledge of Java.

When trying to assimilate all the information available on the cloud, one has to start filtering out information that will be useful for navigating it.  To look at it objectively, no formal education in computer science is required in order to understand the cloud and its applications, but a deep study of all the information available about the cloud is necessary. When one does this, it is necessary to study only that information which helps us negotiate the cloud better. This means, we have to filter out irrelevant information available about the cloud. Thus, we see that navigating the cloud is not difficult considering the three pronged approach explained above.
